of all of the latino children are uninsured. all of the families, said it is a big win for us and the same for the african-american community, but it wasn't just for a specific community. i think that he shied away from those issues which is like for us we didn't get immigration reform done. >> final comment from hector. >> i just want to say talking about the most moving and humbling moment in life is when i was on the march where i had the [inaudible] where dr. king spoke almost 50 years ago. there was unique. but some of the comanches were marching with the african-american children singing together in the symbolism of coming together almost 50 years to fight for the same issue for the right to vote but also on the workers' rights and education is very important, and we need to keep focus on that level of unity because together we can for 30% of the piatt to become pie as we need to work together understanding each community with high priorities that reflect the interest of the common working class. >> i don't want 30% of the pie. i want at least 50. all right, folks, give
% of the vote among latino voters. african-american was like 95-4 or something like that and the poll has shown the african-american vote is rocksolid for the president and the numbers extremely high so lets let's just sort of assume rough parity with last time. but the question was, as you suggested the turnout levels among latino voters and i would add young voters very much questionable and when i have gone on campuses i cannot find a pulse. you saw a registration table registered to voters. there might be a couple of people behind the table to register people and nobody in front of the table registering. there's there is just no pulse there. is it safe to say that a seven-point margin becomes you know, six or five or four? sort of taking turnout down among these two groups? just by necessity this was going to be a lot closer. >> look in 2008, the president had to win this back. a seven-point margin for a democrat is big. that is a historic margin for a democrat. no, think all of us expected this to be a closer race. i think charlie the thing we should look for it now with early voting, we h

senate he's going to vote against it again. the latino families in the state and in this country deserve to have that dream act passed. deserve comprehension immigration reform, you crack down on employers that knowingly hire undocumented workers, and then you give people an opportunity to get to the back of the line and have some sort of legal status when they get to the front. and the old arizona law which is paper, please, that's a terrible discriminatory law. my opponent wants to bring it to nevada. heller: i say we agree and 80% of clinically the 20% we didn't agree. amnesty. that's what she supports at the end of the day. if you put a blanket amnesty down on the floor of the house of representatives, she would support. let's step back for just a moment. people come in -- the hispanic so, to my office, they are concerned about the dream act and the concerned about other things. they're concerned about their families, jobs. they're concerned about the education for the kids. these are the issues we have to solve unsolved for the hispanic community. they are unemployment again is half
population is latino, puerto rican and a diversity as well. so i got elected last november. there were four of us running in the election. it was a nonpartisan race on the local level so the top two vote getters went against each other in november. i won with 53% of the vote and i became mayor in january at the age of 22. and then i turned 23 and i will be 24 and january so i'm quickly getting up there. [laughter] it is a very stressful job at all so very very rewarding. there is nothing more special than being a mayor and a town or city that you're born and where your family still lives in your friends are there in the schools that you want who are still there and your teachers or if still teaching in the public schools. given my age are current our current school superintendent for example is my principal of the high school so it's been a really reporting experience and we are focused on four different issues in particular and that is education. we have a 53% graduation rate over four years so a lot of large urban centers around the country we do have challenges around education and our g

school where became the first latino to receive three graduate degrees from harvard. true to my promise, i came home as an er doctor at eisenhower medical center. i am living proof that the american dream. but for too many people, the american dream is endangered because washington is broken. too many workers have lost their jobs. too many retirees have lost their saving and too many students can't afford college. and congress and our congress on have lost touch with the people. instead of looking out for us, they are focused on partisan bickering, scoring political points of looking out for themselves and wealthy donors. congresswoman bono mack's response is more at the same. more bickering, more partisanship. and were looking out for yourself instead of us. instead of listening to people in proposing world solution, the congresswoman replies on the same partisan playbook that does nothing to create jobs or fixed income. watch tonight how many times you pass around empty phrases like liberal and big governments and nancy pelosi. every time you hear them, remind yourself, this is a lang
so many new jerseyans and immigrants and the latino community disproportionately affected, work for these businesses that will be affected. one out of six americans work in the private sector, work for a small business, so we can't let these tax rates go up and you talk about access to capital. you know we overregulate the banks. we had some problems on wall street obviously and these guys passed a big massive regulatory bill that now ensures that businesses cannot get their loans. they can't meet their payroll. people want to go and refinance her house and they can't do it. and so, communities, all communities are holding their breath that we can do something differently. these guys haven't passed a budget in three years so why should we be surprised that they haven't done anything about the fiscal cliff that is coming? and a shortage of capital in and the access to capital. menendez: i didn't hear an answer to your question so let me try. first there will be no tax increases on new jerseyans or americans in january because we will not allow the fiscal cliff to ultimately have
about the military service or whether it is his discussions of latinos or his attacks on the president. i am proud of my military service. its product line and and that's how i conduct myself to it i served my nation honorably. i've never called myself a hero and everyday i get up and i work every day to serve my nation because i have that to live up to. i have to make sure that i make the most of the second chance of life that i have and carry with the responsibility. it's up the mission, it's about getting the job done and making sure that you come together and decide for partisan vitriol that comes out, and my opponent is known for that and at "the chicago tribune" said he's a hyper partisan mega mouth. we don't need that in washington. >> moderator: me at the beginning of every town hall that i've had for two and a half years i recognize those that have served and i have called them hero's. the point that i've always tried to make is this great country is struggling right now. to run for congress you need to tell the voters what you believe and where you stand on issues and not jus
